UK Artist of the Week: CHILDCARE

This week’s Artist of The Week are the hotly tipped softcore-psych group CHILDCARE. They’ve already released a number of critically acclaimed tracks and are ending the year on a high with the release of their hugely infectious latest single “Bamboo,” out now via Big Indie Records.

Now, this is where things get interesting; the band is usually fronted by the extremely capable Ed Cares, however, for “Bamboo” the quartet decided to spice things up a bit and instead, bassist Emma Topolski takes centre stage. It’s a gamble that has certainly paid off. Emma’s stunningly majestic voice floats effortlessly over the heavy guitar riffs and pounding drums, creating something that falls between the likes of Everything Everything and The Japanese Breakfast.

The band is also renowned for their utterly flawless harmonies and this is certainly maintained on “Bamboo.” The rich and perfectly executed “ahs” throughout the track deserve your attention, that’s for sure.

CHILDCARE have already supported Bastille and regularly sell out shows in their London hometown, so we’re sure that 2019 will no doubt be a big year for these guys. Not to mention their debut album is tipped for release in February 2019. Its all happening and we can’t wait to hear it.

“Bamboo” is in stores now via Big Indie Records.
